Annual ABQ Grecian Festival held at St. George Greek Orthodox Church – just a walk away from our home.

April 24th, we left the high elevation of Taos, New Mexico (6,969 ft.) for a slightly higher elevation in Pagosa Springs, Colorado (7,126 ft.). The drive north was absolutely beautiful.

The Pagosa area is known for its hot springs, year-round outdoor activities, brilliant fall leaf color, and the surrounding views of the big San Juan Mountains.

On the way to Taos, New Mexico on April 12, we spent the afternoon visiting Santa Fe and taking the High Road into Taos. We stayed 12 nights at a townhouse style Airbnb in the adobe city of Taos.
